    Travel video about destination Yihe
    Yuan.The former summer palace of the Late Empire Dynasty of Yihe
    Yuan is located among the northwestern outskirts of the Chinese
    capital of Peking. It is also known as The Garden of Harmonious
    Pleasures. However, a number of buildings have managed to survive
    the ravages of time. In 1860 the Opium Wars reached the summer
    palace of Yihe Yuan. Western colonial troupes devastated the Chinese
    Garden and destroyed numerous buildings. Reconstruction of the
    pavilion was due to the Emperors widow, Cixi. After the death of her
    husband, Ianfeng, in 1861, the empress took control of the empire
    and subsequently ordered the restoration of the buildings that were
    destroyed during the OpiumWars. The dominant Longevity Hill, known
    as Wanshou Shan, is crowned by a 41 metre high pavilion, The Tower
    Of Buddhist Virtue that was built in 1750. For many years a cruise
    on Kunming Lake has not been reserved solely for the former family
    of the emperor as it is now frequented by tourists from around the
    world. The widows favourite haunt was the Marble Boat from which she
    enjoyed the magnificent view across the lake. In spite of past
    military destruction, the natural beauty of the elegant gardens of
    the Yihe Yuan Palace has been extremely well preserved.
